  Memorial Day 2009 


Welcome to my first gallery on ARC!  This is my latest model F4U-1 from the beautiful Tamiya kit.  The kit was pretty straightforward, all parts went together smoothly.  The model is out of the box except for seatbelts made from masking tape.

The plane was flown by Lt. Halford from USS Essex.  Paintjob was done using Pactra acrylics.  Some weathering thanks to Van Gogh oil paints.

I enjoyed building the kit and I hope you enjoy the pics.
